What is the study of tree bark called?
The study of identification and structure of trees is called dendrology. I have never heard of a name for the study of bark only - but that does not necessarily mean there is not one!
Not sure about bark but the study of tree rings is "dendrochronology".
Perhaps you can search www.google.com or check with your local library.
